The Congress Party in Shimla, led by Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, staged a ‘Sankalp Satyagraha’ protest at the Ridge against Rahul Gandhi’s removal from the Lok Sabha.
The candlelight protest was attended by Congress leaders as well as several Cabinet ministers.
Chief Minister Sukhu, while slamming the union government said that it can stop Rahul Gandhi in parliament, but not in public.
“People and political parties did not face the situation that has arisen today in the country due to bad and anti-people / policies of the Union government. Rahul Gandhi is the voice of democracy and the party is the biggest political party. You can suppress his voice in the parliament but you can’t suppress him in the people’s court. He does not do politics for MP or for the seat of Prime Minister. Democracy is under threat today and we will have to save it,” said the Chief Minister.
While Cabinet minister Vikramaditya Singh during the protest alleged that democracy has been “throttled and killed” making the situation critical.
“The Parliament is the temple of democracy but the opposition is not being allowed to take up the issues and is not able to raise their voice. The situation is critical democracy has been throttled and killed. For those who are trying to raise the voice of people, cases are being registered against them. We will have to fight this battle, if these kinds of atmospheres continue in the country the bright future of the country is in dark,” Singh said.
